outdoor
3 - 4 hours
About the event

“Into the sea they went, where Poseidon is king and Zeus's face is never shown. Into the vast liquid land they went, to pierce the veil of the unknown”.

The Argonauts traveled together for years reaching lands farther than any Greek had before them, and in the process, experiencing great dangers. But despite the dangers, temptations, and uncertainties of their journey, as true heroes, they continued on their mission.

There’s always some truth in ancient myths. The Argonauts quest might actually be the first ever amphibian expedition to unknown worlds. Some even suggest that the Argonauts reached as far as the Americas!

Innovation was always the driving force of explores, and ancient mythological heroes of Greece are no exception!

Event details

The army of the Argonauts will split into smaller battalions (8-12 persons each) that will face the quests that lay ahead, united, in order to forge themselves with courage and will for the decisive battle: destroy the evil demigod with a mighty weapon!

The battalions are split into Explorers & Warriors (half of the battalions will start as Explorers while the other half will start as Warriors, swapping roles later on) trying to find instructions & materials to build their weapon. Since the galleons of the battalions are sunk, each one of the battalions is left with just kayaks or small boats...

  • Explorers begin their quest of finding parts of the instructions and the necessary projectiles that are needed in order to use the weapon. Hermes the god of e-mail (!) has sent our heroes maps with the approximate location of the sunken instructions & projectiles.
  • Warriors will be the land army for now, and try to win the heavy materials from the Spartans. In order to win the materials they should follow the Spartan way of proving their abilities as warriors.

Once all of the battalions have completed their sea and land quests and have collected the materials and instructions needed, they are ready for the final battle! The war machines that need to be built are catapults of approximately 4 meters height, an invention of Dionysius of Syracuse, that was considered by the ancient Greeks as a technological marvel! Those machines can throw small projectiles (tennis balls) safely at a distance of 20m or more.

PS A digital version of Argonauts quest is also available (@ an extra price).
